    I have the same problem, where in I only see the initial Compaq screen on the laptop LCD and then everything goes blank. If I connect an external monitor everything is okay. This happened on its own and I did not change anything on the laptop. I also do not see teh option to change the default screen to be the laptop LCD. What do I need to do ?

Both of these soloutions could not be more WRONG!!! Thanks guys for leading me on a wild goose chase... Here is the soloution!

This problem occurs because of an issue with the Videoprt.sys miniport driver and with the video graphics adapter (VGA) basic input/output system (BIOS) implementation in Windows XP SP1. When you open the lid of the portable computer in this scenario, the expected power request to turn on the LCD backlight does not occur.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2.o resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Windows XP.

-or-

After you configure the energy-saving settings for an LCD monitor, the monitor on your Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based portable computer may not turn on again after you reopen the lid. For example, this problem may occur after you configure energy-saving settings by following these steps: 1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 2. In the Pick a Category window, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options. 3. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, click the Power Schemes tab, and then click After 1 min in the Turn off monitor list. 4. Click the Advanced tab, and then in the When I close the lid of my portable computer list, click Do nothing. 5. Click Apply, and then click OK. 6. Wait for one minute for the monitor to turn off. Close the lid of the portable computer, disconnect the computer from the power source, and then reopen the lid. The monitor may not automatically turn on as expected. Note These steps apply when you have Control Panel set to Category View.

This problem is not resolved even after you press a key on the keyboard. In this scenario, you must restart your computer to regain use of the monitor.

To work around this problem, add the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\LidCloseSetPower To do this, follow these steps. Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK. 2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers 3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key. 4. Type LidCloseSetPower as the key name, and then press ENTER. 5. Quit Registry Editor.

Laptops will have ability to expand to external monitor. When you do this there are usually 3 options. 1. display video just on laptop display 2. display video on laptop and external monitor or 3. display video only on external monitor. My guess is you have the 3rd option selected. Different manufactures and models change these in different ways. But it's usually function and one of the number keys. on one of the number keys there should be a picture of a monitor. hit function and this number key a few times.

Hi i have a compaq presario laptop and after it stars up the screen just goes blank

Hi there,
do you still see the compaq logo and does it show you the windows boot up screen before it goes blank?
OR
do you see anything on the screen at all after pressing the power button?
Check if the laptop is receiving power. If it has power and you can't see anything on the screen it could mean that the LCD assembly or the Video card of your laptop is bad.
If it goes to the compaq screen and then to windows logo before going out, try booting into safe mode and once there uninstall the video driver from the device manager because that means the resolution was set to something higher than the display could handle.
If it restarts after showing the compaq screen try reseating the memory, hard drive and wireless card of your computer put them one by one and try turning the compter on after each part you put back to check which component is point of failure.
Otherwise you have a bad motherboard and it may have to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.

Hi.

Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.


Good luck.

Blank screen on start up

It means that your system cannot detect Windows on your hard drive. Check the connections inside if you can. If everything is connected properly, then your hard drive is probably is at fault. You can do a disk check in dos but may not be accurate.
